On Thursday, May 20, guests will fill the hotel’s exquisitely decorated guestrooms and suites, champagne will flow at The Palm Court’s beloved Afternoon Tea, and Guerlain Spa will pamper patrons with luxurious treatments.
With 282 distinctive accommodations—including the Eloise-themed suite, the palatial Royal Suite overlooking Fifth Avenue, and the Fitzgerald Suite designed by costume designer Catherine Martin—The Plaza has inspired books, starred in countless films, welcomed dignitaries from around the world, rolled out the red carpet for Broadway and Hollywood stars, and hosted milestone celebrations since 1907.
The momentous occasion will also mark a turning point for the prestigious address. While its legacy for luxury service is iconic, The Plaza is looking ahead and promises to return with modern touches that enhance the experience of its guests. With the reservation of any of the hotel’s 29 Legacy Suites, which feature Alexandra Champalimaud interiors and offer views of Fifth Avenue or Central Park, guests will receive arrival and departure transportation up to 100 miles from the hotel—a special invitation to the hotel’s local guests looking for a seamless summer getaway. Private dining will be available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and reimagined entertaining menus will allow guests to celebrate proposals, engagements, and anniversaries in style.
Of course, the health and safety of guests and employees will remain a priority, and no expense has been spared to ensure that travelers will feel at home at The Plaza. Pre-arrival programs will allow guests the option of contactless check-ins, while in-suite COVID testing will be available for travelers heading off to their next destination and returning clients will note even higher standards of housekeeping service to maintain every inch of the property in top shape.
